Meet the gay horror film buff and a canine-loving lesbian duo: Gay ‘toon master captures proud locals



He’s a gas, gas, gas
Who: Javier Villareal, Oak Lawn resident.
Age: 35
Resumé: Former bartender at Tin Room. One of his fondest memories is of clients doing shots off him on a pool table. Now Villareal works at The Gas Pipe on Maple Avenue.
Tummy-yummy: Villareal likes cooking for others — but not for himself.
Spends his free time: Going to museums, musicals; watching horror films; and attending Dallas Cowboy games with his brother.


Must love dogs
Who: Lyndsey Leggitt, left, (24) and Sabrina Arredondo (25).
Spotted at: Bark Park Central, the downtown dog park with their dogs, Julius and London.
Measuring up: They’ve been together for five and a half years. Arredondo says she wears the pants in the family. While taller and tougher-looking, Leggitt says she’s the shy one.
Work it: Leggitt is a student and bartends at Suede; Arredondo is a MAC Cosmetics makeup artist.
At their leisure: Leggitt likes motorcycles; Arredondo digs roller derby. They frequent the Cedar Springs strip together for drinks, dancing and hanging with friends.
